Celebs Go Dating had a slightly awkward surprise in store for one of its contestants tonight (January 20).

After a disastrous date, former 5ive member Abz went back to the agency in dire need of some advice, but he got more than he had bargained for.

Before meeting with Abz, Anna Williamson had teased a "blast from the past" that had her fellow agent Paul Carrick Brunson amused and worried in equal proportions.

Once Abz went upstairs, Anna was ready for her revelation. The agent told Abz she used to be in a girl band called Blush. As it turns out, her group opened for 5ive back in the 1990s – and that's when Anna and Abz's paths crossed.

"Let's go back to 1997," Anna told a worried Abz.

"I was in a girl band and we had probably the best gig of our life," the agent continued, showing Abz a framed picture of her and her bandmates with 5ive members.

Abz swore he couldn't remember having met Anna before. When the agent told him the name of her group, the rapper said, "That rings a bell," not particularly convincingly.

Anna swiftly clarified that nothing romantic or sexual went on between them.

"We never got it on," Anna told Abz, who was immediately relieved.

Once their reminiscing was out of the way, Anna had some solid advice for Abz: not chucking food. If you're looking for context, know that, during his first date, Abz scared Sacha by squishing a muffin. His date's feedback? A four out of ten. Ouch.

On his date with legal adviser Georgia, Abz appeared to have fully ignored Anna's dating tips. After ordering a burger served with a 24-karat gold leaf, the singer decided to sprinkle some of the golden leaf on his cheek. Lucky for him, Georgia seemed to like it. Second date, anyone?
